Ideation Process - bring all together
Ideation Brainstorming is a guided, knowledge-based brainstorming approach that combines the advantages of Osborn's traditional method with I-TRIZ problem-solving techniques. Ideation Brainstorming is applicable in any technological domain.
Ideation Brainstorming is applied to an Inventive Situation by way of the 5-step Ideation Process:
Place the cursor over the blue text to view related explanations.
A procedure for transforming a vague inventive situation into a simplified problem model, and then envisioning an ideal solution and, finally, analyzing and resolving contradictions.
Formulate an ideal
vision: Everything in the system remains unchanged or becomes less complicated,
while the required function appears or a harmful function disappears.
A situation wherein existing knowledge does not provide a satisfactory solution.
A pathway for solving a problem or improving a situation. Tasks are realized through the application of Directions and Operators.
The combination of ideas that solves an inventive problem.
The substances and fields (energy) existing in a system or its surroundings, as well as their properties, functional characteristics and other attributes, which can be utilized for system improvement.
A recommendation for changing the system in order to solve a problem or improve a situation. Operators are drawn primarily from the successful results of previous inventors, as represented in large part by the world's compendium of patents.
An abstract pathway to address a Task. Directions are realized through the application of Operators.
A description that impels us to set our sights on the following ultimate goal: No significant changes are made to the system, yet the problem is resolved or the desired improvement is obtained.
Determine whether a concept meets the success criteria and formulate Subsequent Tasks to be resolved.
Problems arising as a consequence of the innovation process, which must be resolved before a concept can be implemented. (Most concepts are associated with subsequent tasks.)
Analyze an inventive situation by representing it as a relationship between useful and harmful functions in order to reveal contradictions -- functions that have both useful and harmful outcomes.
Proceed through a guided, knowledge-based brainstorming process by applying Directions and Operators.
Look for ways to combine ideas into a concept.
Evaluate concepts against the success criteria and formulate
